this handful of swing states are. president obama and mitt romney are following each other from one battleground state to another. on wednesday ohio was their target. >> you probably are aware that there's an election going on right now in ohio. >> i believe you're going to help me win ohio. >> reporter: today it's a quick flight to virginia. >> we're a compassionate people. >> reporter: on wednesday romney tried to convey a more empathetic candidate. >> we have people that are hurting, we have people that are disabled and poor and they need our help and receive our help. we're a charitable people. >> reporter: recent polls shows romney trailing the president on the question of which candidate cares about my needs. but time is running out for governor romney to change voters' minds. early voting is under way in two dozen states. it starts today in iowa and next week in ohio. that has both campaigns stepping up their advertising in key swing states. >> we should measure compassion by how many people can get off of welfare. >> reporter: romney released a new 60 second ad. he talks abo
in the battleground states. >>> mitt romney could make a huge impact on the supreme court. how he could change the direction of the court for decades. >>> they make $10 a day to put their lives on the line. but they could lose their job ifs they don't lose some weight. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're now just 36 days from the presidential election and nationally our brand-new cnn/orc poll of likely voters shows the race between president obama and governor romney remaining up for grabs. the president leads 50% to 47%. but his three-point margin is within the poll's sampling error. our chief national correspondent john king is in denver getting ready for the debate over there. that's the site of the debate. john, take us into these numbers. what are you seeing? >> reporter: well, wolf, i can tell you this, talking to senior officials in the romney campaign, they believe after a tough week or ten days, the last several days, they have a little bit of a breeze at their back. they say the race has stabilized. you dig into the numbers. what is the most important issue in
four years ago. states governor romney very much needs to win this time. go to the electoral map to show you why. final six weeks, 237 electoral votes strong or leaning the president's way. these are the toss up states. the golden states. forget the rest of them. if the president can keep that lead and carry florida, if the president can keep that lead and carry ohio, the race is to 270, wolf, that would be in two words game over. >> gloria, if you look at the strength that the president has in these states, you see something fascinating. >> it is. i call it the empathy question. which candidate is seen as advancing the interest of the middle class? you see the president up by 25 points on that question in florida, by 19 points in ohio. and that is of course what people vote on. because everybody says they're middle class. so this is essentially asking, who's the fellow who cares more about my interests? and with obama up by those considerable double digits, it's very, very difficult for mitt romney. >> puts the pressure on romney in these presidential debates, the first one a we
of the united states, governor romney. i am so proud of this ticket. that me tell you i am also proud of paul ryan. i wore my miami university tie. here is what we have to do. we know the race is going to come down to the wire. we have always known it is going to be close. it is going to come down to last. it is going to come down to one states, oh -- >> io. >> we have to do our job. absentee ballots. if you'd have a friend who does not have an absentee ballot, tell them how to apply and get it. it is easy. make sure your parents have their ballots. if you have a daughter or a son in college, e-mail them, i did that to my daughter last night. she came back to me within about five minutes. dad, i have already done it and applied. that is what we need to do. when we think about this election, it really is about our kids and grandkids, where do we want to be in the year 2016? imagine the difference. one person has one division and what made this country and the other has another vision, it comes down to the simple question, who do you think bill to this country? who built it? was that the govern
his lead in the state. mitt romney also in the buckeye state telling audiences he cares about the people of america. romney acknowledging that some of the polls show him behind president obama. but he pointed to the first presidential debate less than a week from now as a potential turning point in the race. >>> in new york it was a rough ride for nearly 200 people aboard a brazilian jetliner from rio. they were bracing for a crash landing at kennedy airport because the landing gear was stuck sideways. you can see it there. the pilot circled twice before touching down. the nose gear seemed to miraculously straighten itself out just before the plane hit the tarmac. thankfully no one was injured. but some anxious moments aboard that plane. >>> airlines across the country are raking in big profits from what used to be a free service. they're pocketing billions of dollars in baggage fees all coming at the expense of fed up passengers. abc's brandi hitt has the story. >> reporter: checking your bag at the airport has added up to big business for u.s. airlines. so big airlines raked

into this a little bit more, joining me now, retired united states army lieutenant colonel and former fox news middle east former senior advisor to governor romney and also author of the book "the coming revolution, struggling for freedom in the middle east." as we get more details on the events prior to the benghazi attacks it appears in the days, the weeks and the months prior there was plenty of warning signs. why is it these were the very least ignored? >> the main problem the administration has in libya is being unable to connect information from the various agencies. the fact there are militia on the ground proceeding as rebels. penetrated by al qaeda. because it was not visible in the administration, were penetrated by al qaeda. ashley: livia one of the most dangerous areas in the world, i know in hindsight 2020, but in your opinion was protection adequate enough? >> evidently not. clearly you bring all of your activities and your agency repetitiveness and military representatives imagery and so forth. good intel assessment will point this out. it is a good indicator. what i would like to see
to crush governor romney in romney's home state, by 25 to 30 points. that's an enormous hill for scott brown to climb. he raises a point of vulnerability with elizabeth warren's candidacy. the native americanlaimack fothn gn about that. his -- the danger for scott brown in this is that as jim again pointed out, he has a very high favorability factor in the state. but he's changing his personality now in the minds of izh rren on this. and it'll be interesting how it plays out. i think it's jump ball right now. >> stick around and watch our next segment, we're going to replay and relive the nightmare of the packer game last night. thanks so much for the politico playbook. the officials a month ago were calling children's pee-wee games, it wasn't that bad. and the finish tt has jim vandehei cursing the officials.

it very difficult for romney to put together a coalition that can take the state. colorado has been fairly close so again obama mabey looks like a fairy or four-point lead on average read a lot of demographic change. you can see the minority eligible voters have gone up by three percentage points and working-class voters in 2008 have gone down by three percentage points. again it doesn't appear that romney is able to turn the demographics tie in his favor. he's not doing much better among the white working-class voters according to the polls i've seen. he's made some progress on the outside margin that obama got 14 points in 2008 among the college graduate voters but he's not making nearly enough voters to take the state and if you break it down geographically the denver metro area is about half the vote in the state but that looks very similar in the polling data as it did in 2008. finally, the poster child for demographic change in the united states and how it's been shifted pretty rapidly over time as the great state of nevada. obama is running ahead of though not nearly as far as he di
obama in some states and more votes from romney in other states. a wasted vote it is a vote for somebody you don't believe in. i make a pitch that everybody waste their vote on may and i am the next president of the united states. i would do a good job at it. host: richard from new york, republican, thank you for waiting. caller: i appreciate what you did with that one debate when you mentioned ron paul. you and him what had been a good team. the only other choice b3wi esides ron paul is you. they said the less of two evis evil. still an all this promoting the homosexual agenda. we have to have a change. ron paul was the grandfather of the tea party. i hope to see you on the show. i appreciate you running. guest: well, thank you. i support marriage equality. i think marriage equality is a constitutionally guaranteed act, on par with the civil-rights of the 1960's. host: john from illinois. caller: the only problem that i have is about the tax issue. the reason why i say that is our taxes in this country have never been set up to be fair. what they were set up for was that the rich were s

and mitt romney were keenly aware of the buckeye state's place in history. no republican has won the white house without it. romney went out of his way to show his compassionate side greeting world war ii veterans and courting working class families. >> these are tough times even for families with jobs. i know what it takes to get this economy going again. i care about the people of america. >> reporter: it's a delivered effort, analysts say, with a tv ad designed to show empathy and soften his image. >> president obama and i both care about poor, working class families, the difference is, my policies will make things better for them. >> reporter: and despite relentless criticism of obama care, romney touted how his own health care overhaul in massachusetts helped families. >> don't forget, i got everybody in my state insured, 100% of the kids in our state have health insurance, i don't think there's anything that shows more empathy and care about the people of this country than that kind of record. >> reporter: still, president obama is furiously working to frame his opponent as out of to
% over mitt romney. since nevada was so hard hit with these economic woes this is the kind of state where mitt romney has to break through. megyn: we'll bring you this presidential debate live. it will be hosted by yours truly along with bret baier. we hope you will join us for that and the post-game analysis right here on fnc. a growing debate over the money we send to egypt after one congresswoman puts $450 million of u.s. aid to that country on hold. september 12 we watched mobs in cairo tear down the american flag and replace it with a black islamic flag of their own. as we learn $450 million is just a portion of what we send their way questions are coming up about what we want to do before we send any more taxpayer dollars overseas. joining me now, former ambassador to the united nations and fox news contributor, john bolton. this congresswoman has blocked the $450 million. she says given the relationship we have with them i don't know if we are justified in forking this over immediately. >> i think having congress show how outraged it is about it egyptian government's behavior is a
the romney camp, as good news, chris, since he is shown as trail anything a lot of these swing state polls as well. >> well, certainly it's not good news if you're president obama. if that's true, if you really have 18% persuadable voters, this comes after fife months -- five months of the most stained, negative attack, most personal barrage against a candidate by an incumbent president that we've ever seen. if there's still 18% of the people that say, well, you know, i'm hope to this guy, i'm open to hear what he has to say, that would include some romney voters who might be open to the president, but when you'd have an incumbent,ou'd expect that much persuade about would be good news for the challenger, that the president hasn't been able to convince all the persuadable voters that mitt romney is, in fact, a vampire. megyn: now, we saw during the republican presidential primary that these debates really can have an effect. candidates really were forced to leave the race based on their debate performances occasionally during that republican primary, so it's no accident that we have both s
-founder and romney supporter tom stemberg. no one understands the swing state of ohio better than senator rob portman. he'll be joining us from cincinnati. but before we get to all this, and believe me, this is a lot to get on today, let's get you up to speed on this morning's other top headlines with andrew. welcome back. >> thanks. we haven't even talked about football, but i hope we get a chance to. china central bank reportedly injecting 57.9 billion into money markets. regulators are struggling to maintain liquidity without the injection. speaking of china, the country's largest listed steel maker has suspended output at a plant as the economy slows and demand weakens. meantime 40% of china's iron ore mines are standing idle as steel prices have crumbled. and loans to firms and households fell more than expected. ecb staying loans to the private sector fell 0.6% from the same month a year ago. italy's borrowing costs falling at a bond auction today. analysts say the auction shows nand for italian government paper remains healthy. and eu regulators are prepare to go charge microsoft for failing t
at bowling green state university.. and later this afternoon at kent state university. obama leads his republican opponent, mitt romney, in several recent polls in ohio. but a washington post poll shows ohio voters trust romney more than the president to do a better job of handling the budget deficit. and mitt romney is telling ohio voters he feels their pain, and and he knows how to fix it. in a high school gym outside columbus this morning.. golf legend jack nicklaus introduced romney by saying the two men share family values. romney told the crowd of two thousand people, they can trust him to know his strengths.. righting the economy as well as tackling the national debt. romney is scheduled to take part in a manufacturing roundtable in bedford heights, ohio this hour. he'll attend a rally later this afternoon in toledo. sad news today for a generation who grew up listening to crooner andy williams. williams died at his home in branson missouri. he had bladder cancer. with 17 gold and three platinum records, andy williams was among the most popular singers of his time. his variety
particularly the swing state polling being so negative for romney republicans have to gin up their base and say, looks, this is not over. don't file the election away. we are still in the game. in fairness to chris christie, he received to the other at the -- >> were you surprised? this is going to be a game changer? >> a little bit. i understand it. you look at yesterday a poll out in ohio. obama up. saturday in iowa, obama up. every state they're bone contesting, president obama is ahead. republicans clearly have to give the message to the troops. look, this is -- we are still in this hunt and this is going to about reset moment. >> a lot of talk about zingers that perhaps will be created by the mitt romney team. the "new york times" writes, mr. romney's team concluded the debates are about creating moments and equipped him with a series of zingers he has memorized and has been practicing for days since august. we've seen zingers defining debates in the past. look at a couple of the most memorable ones. >> zingiest. >> there you go again. >> i want you to know that, also, i will not make age
. when mitt romney was governor, the credit rating on his state was upgraded. that is the kind of change we will get with the mitt romney presidency. [applause] we need to tackle our nation's challenges before they tackle us. we need to save and strengthen medicare and social security. your putting ideas on the table of how to do that. we will not scare seniors. we will save the benefits for seniors and my generation so these promises are kept. we believe in strong national defense. we do not agree with the president's reckless defense cuts because we believe in peace through strength. [applause] in the live free or die state, we know this to be true. we want to be in control of our own health care. to do that, we have to repeal and replace obamacare. [applause] the choice is clear. we can either stick with the failed policies of the last four years for the next four years, which gives us a stagnant economy and foster's government dependency, or we can fix these problems. we can bring the leadership we are lacking and have a dynamic, growing economy that produces opportunity, a. mobility
. take a listen to mitt romney recently on the campaign trail. >> he's president of the united states, he's a very effective speaker. >> he's a very eloquent speaker, and so i'm sure in the debates, as last time in his debates with senator mccain, he'll be very eloquent. >> it's not only mitt romney and his campaign playing the game. so is the obama campaign. >> what history tells us, that challengers normally win the first debate. just by the fact that they're standing on the stage with the president. that elevates them, and they normally come into these things as underdogs. we're coming into this debate very realistic. mitt romney is likely to win if he plays his cards right. >> making those comments on piers morgan. what's the idea, try to bring down your candidate, lower the bar, so if your candidate does better, it's considered a big victory. how much are americans paying attention to that? what they want to hear is what they'll do to make the country better. >> thanks so much, paul. the first presidential debate starting wednesday night, october 3rd. watch it live at 7:00 eastern ti
landscape of corporate america even strong supporters of romney acknowledge that swing state polling numbers in the direction of economic data and markets adjust its time to brace for a second obama term. i want to ask you also about using the word brace in this story. jaczko yeah, i mean i think you know the president has had an antagonistic relationship with business. i think that's pretty clear and so he did over the last several months i think lose the independent vote and certainly the business vote and so the number show he is actually winning i could understand that now they are disappointed it does they were counting on the competition, but i don't think you can really tell right now. i mean it's hard to know how accurate these polls are. in some cases i think the media is pulling democrat and in other cases i think people, they don't necessarily tell you what they're thinking of what they want to do so it's probably likely that you know we see a very close race. it could be, could go either way. i'm just not sure right now how accurate those polls are but i understand the word race
, facebook.com/cspan. here's "the wall street journal" this morning. swing states a tough sell for romney. according to "the wall street journal"/nbc poll, obama leads in nevada 49% to 47% and in new hampshire and north carolina. two of the three states both think romney a strong run the economy. that is one set of polls. now we have this other set we want to show you quickly. this is from rasmussen. they do a daily tracking poll. for a long time now, they have been showing this race as even. this gets updated daily at about 9:30 a.m. they have obama and romney both up 46% nationwide. with leanders, 48% a piece. the swing state tracking poll is tied as well at 46%. this is from rasmussen reports. scott, a republican in colorado springs. hello, scott. what do you think about the campaign media coverage so far? caller: it's a joke. they are all totally biased. the thing that really gets me is that you have these various news view" andbama on 'the letterman. he won't go on fox. he avoids the tough ques tions. it's just as bad here in colorado as anywhere else. i hope when they have the debat
will have a sense as to who can be the better leader for the united states. and mitt romney has to come across as, well, he can do a better job leading the united states on domestic policies. so it's an impression that the viewer will get overall. it will be the zingers. but it will be really the impression. who can create the better impression of leadership and that person will win the debate. >> i must say, it was really something to hear some anonymous spokesperson say that governor romney had been rehearsing the spontaneous moments that they were going to do. >> i'm sure he's not the first politician -- let me ask congressman poe, do politicians do that in general ? i have to imagine all politicians rehearse the spontaneous moments. am i right or am i wrong? >> yes, of course. i think most people in a speech have a one-liner, so to speak. they wait for the right time to use the one-liner. you never know when it'll come up. >> congressman, a thought here. mitt romney spent two years making the case against president obama's first term. three days of a national convention and acceptan
is responsible is the attorney general of the united states. congress ryan, mitt romney, and congress is correct it's time for eric holder to go. there is only five weeks between thousand and the election. there is political consequences and there is real consequences here. even the inspector general's report did not absolve eric holder as he claims it did. he still should have known what was going on with such a massive operation. martha: it did show he didn't know. you are saying that isn't enough. i get that. but there is no indication that the administration has any intention of changing their attorney general, jay. >> that right. i think that's the political reality of the situation. that's why congressman issa has moved for contempt proceedings against attorney general holder. politically the president of the youth is not going to want to make a move at the department of justice which will look like a sign of weakness. we have a dead border patrol agent at the hands our own weapons. we have 16 mexican teenagers killed at hands our weapons in mexico with no knowledge of the mexican governme
, mitt romney will be aggressively storming the campaign trail. >> we're going to get this country on the right track to do what needs to be done. >> reporter: he continued his swing through colorado, the state president obama won in 2008, but is in a dead heat six weeks out from election day. in an interview with abc news, romney said voters have an important choice. >> my job is to present in as clear a manner as i can my view of how to get this economy going and contrast it with the view of a president who is a status quo economic model president. >> reporter: today romney kicks off a bus tour in battleground ohio. this is the last full week of campaigning, before the presidential debates begin and take over the candidates' attention. president obama was off the campaign trail in new york for the annual united nations general assembly. but he stopped by abc's "the view" with the first lady. >> i've just got a different vision about how we grow an economy. i think, barbara, you grow an economy from the middle out, not from the top down. >> today president obama and mitt romney wi
.1 points over mitt romney in national poles. nate silver's prediction model put barack obama's odds of winning the election above 80% for the first time ever. swing state polling just this week seems to confirm the trend. a new quinnipiac "new york times" cbs poll shows surprisingly strong leads for the president. the galup tracking poll shows obama up six points. it's pretty hard to survey the polling data and not come to the conclusion that barack obama is beating mitt romney, that if the election were held today barack obama would win and that romney has a relatively steep though certainly not insurmountable uphill climb to victory. that is if you operate in the alternate epi stem mick universe of the media. >> that begs the question, are these polls dishonest? >> no. look, we endo you them with a falls scientific precision. >> these polls, i don't pay attention to them. >> polling is very good at saying how you're going to vote. it's very bad at saying who's going to vote. >> these two polls today are designed to convince everybody this election is over. >> we should note that f
believe that government has a responsibility to care for them? >> of course not. i agree with mitt romney when he says his comments were poorly phrased. keefe said they were in elegantly stated. i think there is a difference. part of the philosophy of president obama is trying to get as many americans as possible dependent on government so that the democrats can stay in power in perpetuity. the reason i think that is failing is, even those americans, if you break down that 47%, there is a significant chunk of people, receiving social security, who have paid into it their entire life. that is very different from being dependent on welfare. that is a critical safety net our society has counted on that we need to insure remain strong for generations to come. even those who are receiving welfare right now, most americans do not want to stay dependent on government. they want to work for the american dream. they want to work to provide for themselves and their families. i think that is why the obama administration's objective is essentially using bread and circuses to make as many people as po
dan lothian john kerry is playing mitt romney. take a listen to john mccain. he spoke with candy crowley yesterday on "state of the union." john mccain the last man to debate president obama. >> i think both are excellent in their own way. i think you could argue that mitt has had a lot more recent experience. obviously. but also, candy, part of it depends on who's moderating. >> the man's been on the national stage for many years. he's an experienced debate per. this is mitt's first time on this kind of stage. >> paul ryan on the sunday talk shows. the running mate talking down expeations. look at this count. brand-new from abc news/"washington post" this morn ing. who's more likely to win the debates? the president by 20-some points. a lot of americans think the president will have the upper hand on wednesday night in denver. >> we'll see. many thanks. cnn's live coverage of wednesday night's debate starts at 7:00 eastern. >>> syria is expected to try to justify its actions in its bloody civil war when its foreign minister speaks before the united nations general assembly later
is with the president, he's doing well in the national polls and also in these battleground states. the most interesting battleground state is ohio, where it looks like there have been a consistent number of polls that shows the president pulling away ahead of mitt romney outside of the margin of error. things going well for the president. expectations couldn't be higher for mitt romney in debates. >> three new polls show obama with the lead in battleground states. >> in new hampshire and north carolina, and in nevada. what's interesting about nevada is that the president is going to be there for three days of debate preparation. nevada, an early voting state. not just about november 6th in nevada, and the president will be there for three days, have you at least one event. what that does is stir up the democrats in nevada so they can get those votes banked right now and nevada is about two points in that poll, very close battleground state. what's interesting about that state, it's live. going right now. and we don't have to wait until election day. >> everybody keeps talking, six weeks to go before el
candidate mitt romney and president obama will both address attendees at the clinton global initiative today. the meeting begins sunday with leaders in business and philanthropy. and secretary of state hillary clinton spoke monday. this year's meeting addressed poverty, health and the apartment. we will bring in mitt romney's remarks live at nine eastern here on c-span2. than president obama's address to the clinton global initiative at noon eastern on c-span. >> new york representative bob turner and former new york city mayor ed koch last week talked about the jewish vote in the upcoming november presidential election. former mayor koch has been a vocal critic of president obama's policy toward israel. he still supports the president. but also discuss the wars in iraq and afghanistan and u.s. relations with the middle east. from fordham university law school in new york, this is about an hour and a half. >> we are here again once again in connection with this conference dedicated to examining the 2012 presidential election, and the way it may be being shaped by the memory of the holocaust
